A split package usually works like this normally: You compile once and then install the results in different packages. So usually a lib32 package conflicts in the building step (which can't be split) There is a workaround to build in the package step, but that is obviously a hack. Additionally: The point of having a split package is to build once for all packages instead of duplicating the build. A "doublel build" kind of defeats the purpose. So that is probably what went wrong for other lib32 splits. However, we don't build anything. We just download and install a static build. So I just use a split in this case. I hope nobody has a problem with downloading two 5 MiB files even when not using lib32.

I've just found out that the 32-bit binary works on my (64-bit) desktop system, but the 64-bit binary does not, so I'm thinking to fork this out to have a sister lib32- package, however, would it make sense to make this a split package instead? (I don't think lib32-foo works well in split package setups, but maybe I got something wrong last time I messed with something similar. :))

This is now using the static build provided by acousticbrainz. The reason is stated in the AB-FAQ: (short: they want few different builds for "statical analysis") I don't really like shipping a binary for open source projects, but this also has good news: The installed size is now 12, rather than 150 MiB. (that probably means only very few functions of the dependencies are actually needed; and it is stripped)

This does not conflict with This package (only) installs an example needed for acousticbrainz. The built version is fixed for now. This is the same commit that is used for the Acousticbrainz-provided essentia binaries.
